LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- From the California coast, to 4th Street Live!, Guy Fieri is bringing his twist on BBQ to Louisville.

"It's not what you'd expect to find in your everyday average BBQ joint," Fieri said Monday. But [at] the smokehouse, we're going to a different level."

Guy Fieri's Smokehouse opened Saturday on 4th Street Live, and on Monday, the man was there himself, where you would expect to find him, in the kitchen.

"I was trying bring a real nice mix of ecletic foods that comes from the smoker ... that have a lot of heart and soul," Fieri said.

Fieri's restaurant is just the latest in a wide array of different restaurants at 4th Street Live! 

Just in the past year, four new restaurants have moved in replacing previous tenants. Guy Fieri's Smokehouse is the latest. 

And the main investor for this restaurant is  Cordish Companies, the group that owns 4th Street Live!

"We give them the renderings, we give them the ideas ... this is how we want to build out the space," Fieri said. "The partnership has been amazing."

Fieri says this concept he plans to bring elsewhere, but Louisville was a great start.

"You don't just get this," he said. "You don't find this everywhere in the country. You guys have your own party destination. Great restaurants, great entertainment. 

"I said if we're going to do it in Louisville, we got to do real deal. That's real deal."
